How do I add a "featured post" tab with thumbnails? (5 posts)

    I'm looking to add a box on the side of my blog with thumbnails and excerpts from featured posts. The theme Grungezine has this, but the theme isn't what I want. I only want that particular feature.

    What's a good way to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks vangrog, but I was looking for something for the sidebar that lists small square thumbnails in a row instead of in a rotating gallery.

    Like this:

    Thumbnail: Excerpt
    Thumbnail: Excerpt
    Thumbnail: Excerpt

    ...and so on

    The Grungezine theme does this elegantly, but I've outgrown that theme. I just wish I could figure out how to do this one little trick.

    You can use the plugin above the way you want: on your header, right sidebar, left sidebar, footer, on a page etc. It can be big, medium, small. You just need to set it up. It's very customizable.

    Cheers

    That guy has a bunch of plugins for similar things, rolling texts, banners etc. Maybe one of them can please you.
